Girls on Games is a video game and geek culture blog operating out of Montreal, Quebec, Canada.
Created in early 2011 by Leah Jewer and Catherine Smith-Desbiens, Girls on Games has quickly become Montreal’s premiere English news source for video game reviews, behind the scenes content, event coverage, editorials and industry spotlights and interviews.
At Girls on Games, we pride ourselves in being a welcoming community for all gamers.
We are an inclusive, pro-equality, pro-diversity and anti-discriminatory brand and that is to be reflected in both the behavior of our staff members, contributors and Stream Team members as well as the content we produce at all times.

What We Do
Games, consoles, hardware, software, accessories... You name it, we tried it and we have an opinion on it. Our fans value our feedback and often solicit our thoughts on various products and services. We try to go beyond the typical review that tend to categorize and label its subject and instead, present it in a way that will let our readers decide if it suits their taste and/or needs.
Thanks to a media relationship with key players in the industry, Girls on Games has access to the latest news: announcements, trailers, releases, delays... Nothing gets past us.
We meet influencers, content creators, streamers, industry members, cosplayers, etc. If someone is making waves in geek culture, we want to hear their story. We have interviewed Baby Metal, Papa Roach, P.K. Subban, Naomi Kyle, Denis Talbot, Voyce, Michael Mando, Elias Toufexis, Amber Goldfarb, Mark Meer, ProJared, Stephanie Harvey, Yaya Han, Kamui, Meg Turney, Jessica Nigri and more!
